WorleyParson’s chief made ECITB north-east chairman

A senior north-east oil and gas executive has been made regional chairman of the Engineering Construction Industry Training Board (ECITB).

Mitch Crichton, a project deliver director with WorleyParsons in Aberdeen, will receive an honorary chairmanship role to help up-skill the workforce in the north-east’s energy sector.

Mr Crichton will also help establish a network of senior industry figures to both support and lead regional and local initiatives, while delivering the strategy and action plans of the ECITB to employers, clients, trade unions, funding partners and agencies.

The former steel worker moved to Aberdeen with Amec Foster Wheeler (Amec) as a project engineer before joining Petrofac.

Mr Crichton re-joined Amec preceding the WorleyParson’s takeover in 2017.

He said: “We must demonstrate the importance of competency, training and development needs by setting in place the framework for our upcoming industry leaders who have both the technical ability and behavioural attributes to drive this industry forward for the next 25 years.

“Making sure the right training is available at the right time, in the right location to support this is very important as is collaboration; if we don’t pool our skills, resources and abilities in the right areas, we risk being inefficient and ineffective.”

Mr Crichton is member of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMA) and is also on the board of the Offshore Contractors Association (OCA).

Chris Claydon, chief executive of the ECITB, said: “It is vital that the ECITB has a strong regional presence in North-east Scotland and I am delighted to welcome Mitch to the ECITB.

“His industry experience will be invaluable in identifying and addressing the long-term skills needs of the workforce.”
